I know that Spiderman 3 is weaker than the first two and is the worst in the series. However, I think that it doesn't deserve to be hated as much as it is by people. There are a great deal of goofy moments, but there are goofy moments in all the other spiderman films too. They also squeezed three villains into one movie and that was a very bad idea, but we'll talk about that later. However, for all the bad stuff, there is some very good stuff that makes this an entertaining and worth-watching …

Spider-Man... the films more or less made Comic Book movies more popular.  At least for the new era.  It sort of changed the way we look at hero films and what they can do.  Spider Man 2 was far better than the first by showing the struggles of Peter Parker being Spider Man.  While films like Batman Begins and The Dark Knight put Spider-Man to shame in the character development arena, it was still refreshing to see a Super Hero movie that went a little beyond some of the campiness …

This movie is such a step backward from the first sequel. Too many characters and too much forced devices make this movie an unfocused farce. Sam Raimi deserves to be fired after this melee, how can you allow the Hobgoblin look like a snowboarder....Gwen Stacy's intoduction was unnecessary and the Butler did it! (yeh, he decides to say something after Harry's face gets all messed up. This is such bad storytelling and Raimi at his worst. and Hollywood is already remaking this fallen …

A movie that gets so much bad press it's unbeliveable when it's NOT a bad movie. Yeah Venom could have been left out and NOT played by Topher Grace but aside from that, it's not bad.

Daughter loved this movie she watches it over and over again and I always see something that is new to me!

A nice if a little cluttered finale to the Spiderman tilogy with Spiderman fighting off 3 villains while finally getting national acceptance. Not as bad as you've heard.
Quick Tip by . August 10, 2010
I tried to watch this movie again last weekend and I actually got angry and turned it off. How could they take something as cool as Spiderman and make it so lame? And even though it wasn't a critical plot point, why was J. Jonah Jameson's desk hooked up to some ridiculous over-exaggerated buzzer? There was too much cheeze I couldn't make it to the great action scenes.

A failure for the series, but good fun none the less..
While Spider-Man  and Spider-man 2 set the bar higher for excellence in  comic book adaptions, Spider-Man 3 the latest installment in the hugely popular  series is a massive step down from those two. It has far too many plot lines and too many villains and that just makes it a crowed  mess. While it does  boast some  really dazzling action sequences and  some cool fights  in the film, it still can't be saved or salvaged from  the  over use of everything   …

Being an enormous fan of Spiderman and greatly enjoying the first two films, I looked forward in anticipation to this film. I was greatly disappointed. There was just too much going on in this film. Where Doc Ock and the Green Goblin were fascinating villains with powerful performances in the other films, the Sandman was a very dry character and Venom was comical like Danny Devito's Penguin in the Batman movie. Additionally, Peter Parker's romance with Mary Jane was all over the place and never …

The third and final installment (allegedly) of the Spiderman movies is all set to tie up all those little loose ends - Peter Parker is finally secure in his role of Spiderman and seeks Mary Jane Watson's hand in marriage ... but, happy endings are only for fairy tales, right? In this installment we are introduced to two newcomers: 1st we meet Flint Marko (Thomas Haden Church) who, after escaping from prison stumbles into a particle accelerator and is transformed in to the mighty Sandman. The 2nd …

(To the tune of Staying Alive)     Well, you can tell by the way the records broke   That the whole world loves that Spidey bloke   Movie three and it's still hot   It's taken over the number one spot   And it's all right - It's okay   though not the best by a long way   Kind of hard to understand   Why so many villains had been planned     Whether you're a spider or riding on a glider   try …

One of the most anticipated movies of summer 2007 Spider-Man 3 ended as possibly the biggest letdown. The spirit that had driven the first two films seems to fizzle in a film that just doesn't have a story to work with its substantial budget.     The original Spider-Man was a great popcorn film, providing a good live-action adaptation of the character's development while Spider-Man 2 was one of the best superhero features ever put on film. So why does a sequel involving the same …

To start off this review, I'd like to give a brief plot synopsis: Peter Parker's got the girl, got the old friend back, got the fame (as Spidey), and got no problems. Then, petty criminal Flint Marko (who's got no money but does have a really sick daughter) gets some sandy powers and uses them to his advantage. Then, Peter gets some galactic goo on his Spidey suit and gets more power (think HGH for superheroes). It all goes to Peter's head and then he loses the girl, loses the old friend (but gains …

In SPIDER-MAN 3, Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) is finally finding a balance to his life after having gained his spider-like powers a few years ago. His superhero alter-ego Spider-Man is beloved by New York. He is thinking about proposing to longtime girlfriend Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst). He's also finally learned how to juggle all of his responsibilities between school, work, personal life, and night time crime fighting. Things seem to be going well.    That is until Harry …
review by . May 06, 2007
Spiderman 3 adheres pretty tightly to the "More is More" theory. More villains, more subplots, more running time, more special effects, etc. It is a big, loud "Summer" movie...apparently among the most expensive ever made...and the money shows on screen.    It is also an occasionally boring or silly movie. I realize this is a comic-book movie, but Spiderman 2 gave us enough believable humanity that we now kind of expect this series to present believable humans enduring unbelievable …

Pros: Good Cast and setup.     Cons: Bad guys are not as dangerous as they should be.      The Bottom Line: While not as good as the first two, Spider-Man 3 will keep most fans happy.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. The most anticipated film of the summer, “Spider-Man 3” has arrived to the delight of moviegoers the world over. It has been roughly a little more than a year since Spider-Man …

(4 1/2 *'s) Mainly for better than for worse `Spider-Man 3' comes back with a vengeance. Not nearly as riveting as its classic predecessor 'Spider-man 2,' this movie swings ahead admirably enough. Just when this adventure starts to reek of overconfidence, we find a fresh trek going in unexpected directions. While 'Spider-Man 2' made our hero a constantly beleaguered underdog, #3 shuffles the deck of perilous contingencies. Seldom extraneous or convoluted, the peril and story lines are still inventive …
